Dine Arounds

Dine Arounds allow colleagues to gather for dinner at a local restaurant in Chicago during the MPSA Annual Conference to discuss professional topics and network with fellow attendees with similar research or professional development interests.

Dine Arounds can range in size from groups of 6-20. A Dine Around host/coordinator proposes a discussion topic, maintains rosters, coordinates details including restaurant reservations, and manages the group’s payment of the check onsite. Dine Around attendees are responsible for their own transportation and for paying for their own meal, drinks and tip.

2023 Dine Arounds are listed below. The deadline to RSVP for a Dine Around has passed. If you are interested in attending one, you may reach out to the organizer to see if there is still room for additional attendees.
